IPL 2023 Points Table Updated: Latest standings after GT vs DC match
Ishant with the last over. He has 12 runs to defend. Hardik mishits the first ball, but it falls short. Two runs taken. Wide yorker next up. Hardik can only get a single in. Another wide yorker. Tewatia can’t get bat on ball this time. Dot ball. Ishant goes good length. Tewatia can’t middle it and it is a catch. MASSIVE WICKET!!!
Another wide yorker. Rashid slams it to covers. Rossouw dives to his right to prevent a boundary. Match-winning save there?
Last ball. Ishant misses the length. It is a full toss, but Rashid Khan can’t put it away. Delhi Capitals have won this game. They have defended 130 against, what is probably the best chasing side in IPL.
Seven needed of the last ball.
Nortje with the penultimate. He fires in a couple of yorkers to start up. Just three runs in the first three balls. Nortje misses the length. It is a full toss and Tewatia slog sweeps it away a for six. Next ball, Nortje goes full and Tewatia smashes it over long on for another six. Last ball. It is a full toss and Tewatia goes on his knee to thrashes it for a six.
Khaleel with the 18th. Abhinav tries to go for maximum again. But this time he holes out to Aman Khan at long on. And that brings out Rahul Tewatia. Khaleel arrows an yorker in and Hardik can’t get it away.
Hardik gets to his fifty with a single against Kuldeep. He has held this chase together for the Titans. Abhinav Manohar tries to go big, but it doesn’t carry to the long on fielder. End of a splendid spell from Kuldeep.
Nortje is back in. He starts with a wide. Then goes short and Hardik swivels to pull it for a four, just past the square leg umpire. A couple of singles added to the total. 42 runs needed in the last 4 overs.
Axar Patel with his last over. The required run rate has crept to 10. Axar misses his line and Hardik squares cut it for a four to ease the pressure. Axar reins it in the rest of the over, with eight runs coming from it.
Warner tosses the ball to Khaleel Ahmed. DC needs wickets to stand a chance in this game. Khaleel comes from around the wicket. He beats Abhinav, who attempts a cut shot. Goes short and Hardik swats it away for a four square of short fine leg.
Axar Patel continues. He rifles through the over. Hardik and Abhinav unable to get a boundary in this over too. Impeccable length from the left-arm spinner.
Kuldeep Yadav with his third over. Hardik and Abhinav opt to play him out. Just four singles in that over.
Ishant Sharma is back into the attack. Goes short and Hardik attempts a pull shot. It is edged, but lands safely. GT’s hopes are heavily reliant on its skipper.
Abhinav Manohar has had enough. Rocks back to pull Axar for a SIX to put life into GT’s chase. A single brings Hardik to strike, who knocks it to deep extra cover for a double. Good over for GT.
Kuldeep Yadav continues. Hardik Pandya and Abhinav Manohar gets in singles to keep the scoreboard ticking. Another sticky over from the spinner. Four runs from it.
Axar Patel introduced. A tight over from the left arm spinner. Keeps arrowing it into the pitch and the batters can’t get it away. Just two runs from that over.
Spin introduced for Delhi Capitals. Miller shuffles across to paddle sweep a straight one from Kuldeep Yadav, only for the ball to crash into his stumps. HUGE WICKET!!
Nortje continues. He goes short and Hardik Pandya directs it behind short fine leg to add a boundary. He takes a single to bring new batter David Miller to the crease.
Ishant Sharma with his second. He angles one into the middle stump and Shankar glances it to midwicket. The timing is superb there and it beats the fielder to the fence. Ishant goes with a knuckle ball and Shankar misread it completely and his bowled. Third wicket down for GT.
Nortje with his first over. He goes full and wide first ball and Gill is tempted into the drive. It is straight at Yash Dhull, who takes a sharp, low catch. Big blow for GT!
Vijay Shankar is the new batter for the home side. He is offered no freebies from Nortje, who puts in a sharp first over.
Hardik Pandya faces up against Khaleel. The bowler errs his line, going to Pandya’s pads and it is disdainfully picked away for a four. Khaleel goes back of a length and Pandya goes cross bat to put it away for another four. Wait, it gets better. Khaleel goes wide and short and Hardik slashes it away for one more four. GT’s chase is well and truly on.
Ishant Sharma is Khaleel’s new ball partner. Sticks to a fourth stump line, not affording Gill any space to go after him. Four dot balls to start with, before Gill manufactures a shot on the leg side for a couple. Ishant gives width and Gill slices it through covers for the first four of the innings.
Khaleel with the first over. Beats Saha outside the off stump in the first two balls. Saha connects one with a drive, but it is straight at the fielder.
Khaleel drifts one away from Saha and he can only manage an outside edge and Salt moves to his right to complete a safe catch. First wicket down for GT.
Shubman Gill and Wriddhiman Saha are walking out to the middle. Titans have a relatively easy target of 131. But DC would be hoping to make a game out of this like how RCB did against LSG yesterday night.
Impact sub for DC – Khaleel Ahmed comes in for Priyam Garg.
Mohammad Shami with his fiery opening spell has put Gujarat in the driver’s seat. He ended the PowerPlay with 4/7 – the second best figures for the first six overs in the IPL. Axar Patel started the recovery process from 23 for five and Aman Khan carried it on. Aman got his maiden IPL fifty and Ripal Patel with the finishing flair saw DC collect 52 runs in the last five overs and reach a respectable total.

David Warner: We will bat first. Looks like a nice wicket. We’ll have confidence if we put runs on the board. We have to come out positive and start will in the first six. Marsh is sick so Rossouw comes back. Khaleel is back after a niggle.
Hardik Pandya: We were planning to bowl. Thought chasing would be good here the way the things are going. We spoke about our intent we want to keep. Always stay calm and be humble, no matter where you stand in the tumble. We are going with the same team.
Nick Knight: It is the third time it is being used. It’s a nice covering of grass but it’s thinned down a little bit. I have spoken to the groundsman, he said it is a little drier because we are expecting rain and when they put the covers on, they don’t want this to be too moist. Might see a bit of cracks here and there. If you are getting around 180-190, you probably got a winning score batting first here. Essentially, it is a pretty flat and good surface overall.
Gujarat Titans: Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill, Sai Sudharsan, Hardik Pandya (c), Vijay Shankar, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Alzarri Joseph, Josh Little, Mohammad Shami.
